I have just returned from my holiday with some fantastic photos. Unfortunately my 10 year old daughter was trying to delete one of the photos and erased - all frames - all our holiday pics erased !! does anyone know whether there is anywhere in the camera that these are programmed in the event of deleting by mistake - Help please ....

Its Easy and reliable! The macro feature works well and a fantastic optical zoom! I have had mine a couple of years, The only down side if any is it struggles inside with poor light but the flash can be used most of the time to compensate (read more)

I bought my Fuji Finepix S602 about 18 months ago, new, at a discounted bargain price of £210,and have never regretted it.
It is an excellent versatile camera, and the enhanced Super CCD does provide excellent results, although only technically 3 MP.
This is plenty good enough for the vast marjority of photographs, and I regularly print vivid, colourful 10 by 8 prints.
What more does the average keen amateur need?
Although I also have a Canon 300d, I often prefer the Fuji, as it is lighter... (read more)

I am a professional photographer, and I switched over to digital some three years ago. I use Nikon digital SLR's for most of my work, but I use the trusty old Fuji Finepix S602 Pro for back up and candid shots at weddings etc. I have had this camera for three years, and it has been hammered by heavy usage, but it still delivers good quality images that I regularly have printed up to 10"x 8" and bigger, and on two occasions I have had 20"x 16" enlargements blown up from S602 files, and the...

I've had the Fuji Finepix S602 for 19 months and am generally very pleased with its features. The optics are superb. However, it has been back to Fuji twice for repairs to the zoom mechanism. This seems to be a design fault as other forums report similar probs. The other down side: if you are downloading to computer and the batteries die, the storage card is fragmented and files can only be recovered using image recall software. (read more)

The Fuji Finepix S602 handles and feels like a classic 35mm SLR.
An excellent all-round camera - there are several other Fuji models like it. If you like photography then this camera is for you. Manual, Aperture, Program or Shutter preferred settings, as well as Auto. Also Scene photography. Variable ISO speed up to 1600ASA. All the lighting and white balance settings, sports/multiframe/P-in-P/time delays/fixed focus and lots more. Being able to put on filters and add-on lenses gives even... (read more)

The Fuji Finepix S602 is a super little camera that is capable of taking great shots in most situations. Focus is slow but OK in good light conditions, but fails to get a lock in low light, low contrast situations. Shutter lag is not instantanious but pretty quick, but the startup time is around 3 seconds.
Using the camera in it's optimal mode ie 3.1 meg fine and 160 iso the results are still up with some of the cameras of simular resolution today.
Writing RAW files is a waste of space and... (read more)

The Fuji Finepix S602 is a very useful tool. First class in super macro mode - you can photograph objects with the lens ring resting on the object, provided enough light is available. Settings not lost when batteeries removed for charging. Many manual options. (read more)

Fuji FinePix S602 - This is my second Fuji, the first I still have - the 401 which is also a mpeg player. Great to carry around in your pocket, and still good photos. I went for this higher performance camera for the optical zoom and macro photography.
Enough has been said in other reviews about how good this camera is, but what I think's worth emphasising is how good Fuji's software design is. I have tried other cameras: Nikon, Canon, Pentax and Kodak, and in my view, the Fuji is just the... (read more)

The Fuji FinePix S602 is without doubt a very good camera - I would recommend going for the S20 PRO however, as the chip is better, and you get small upgrades that just go that little bit further than the s602 - there's a great deal at the moment at Edinburgh Cameras which includes a large memory card.

I bought the Fuji FinePix S602 primarily for sports photography. It's fairly quick in terms of shutter lag and shot to shot time, which is important for quick action. The 602 also has a 6x zoom for getting close to the action.
The 602 is chock full of features for the serious amateur. Without going into all of the features, it has an ISO setting from 160 to 1600, which is great for low light shots. Also, it has aperture, speed, or completely manual modes, as well as automatic setting and... (read more)

I have done black and white darkroom for years, but never got into color because of the cost and difficulty that color film presented. Now I am amazed by the features that the Fuji FinePix S602 Pro camera has, including two macro modes, complete auto to manual control, a great number of color balance options, and the quality my prints have. I always shoot at maximum resolution, in the finest mode. The files are very large, often 17+ megs, but my prints are worth it.
It helped me a lot to... (read more)

No matter what other people say about this camera - i can honestly say that this is by far the best one out there. Don't waste time searching for other types/brands - take this one - you'll not be disappointed. I'll not go into detailed stuff because you must be tired of it - play with it and then you'll see what i mean. (read more)

Having owned SLR cameras in the past i was after a digital camera that gave me the same versatility, but with in a reasonable price range. I found this with the S602, the manual setting is excellent and the ability to change the iso setting is invaluable. The use of an external flash allows you to have better control over different conditions. (read more)

THE FUJI FINEPIX S602 IS SIMPLY THE BEST DIGITAL CAMERA ON THE MARKET TODAY FOR THE MONEY PERIOD!THE PICTURE QUALITY AND FEATURES OF THIS CAMERA IS SUPERB. THE SUPER MACRO MODE AND MOVIE MODE HAS NO EQUAL. THE FUJI SUPER CCD IS FAR SUPERIOR TO THE OLD FASHION STANDARD CCD'S USED BY EVERYONE ELSE. BOTTOM LINE IS TO COMPARE THE PICTURE QUALITY TO A HIGH DOLLAR CANON, NIKON OR OLYMPUS AND YOU WILL SEE FOR YOURSELF. YOURS EYES DON'T LIE. ALSO, IT ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE AND FEELS LIKE A "REAL"...

I searched and searched for a replacement for my trusted Kodak DC500 - in the end I had to make a quick decision - lowest price does not always mean best. If the price seems generously low, check out what peripherals are included and compare against others. I might have paid too much. However, although I get some piccys not to the standard I expect - I can over-compensate by taking more. I have been using the 128 FlashCard I took out of my old camera and I am sure it slows down performance -... (read more)

I wanted to wait until I'd learned enough to write a comprehensive review but I can't contain myself. To say I really love this camera is an understatement! This is the one I've been searching for so I can finally retire my old 35mm rig. To understand why let me digress a little. About 4 years ago a new job started taking me to China and Asia 2 to 3 times a year every year. The first time I went I schlepped along my trusty old 35 mm, motor drive, data back and assortment of lenses and... (read more)

I have tried to love this Fuji FinePix S602 Zoom with all my might, but focus problems and jaggies keep me from getting there. Pictures look soft focus all the time and sometimes you get jaggies in your pictures like the pixels dont know where to go. 8x10s dont look as good as they did with my old 2.1 Nikon. I love the manaul features, but there are some obvious glitches with this model. This camera will use cf1 but exspect a error read mssg in 1 out of 30 picks. Any sugestions please write...

The Fuji FinePix S602 Zoom is one gem of a camera. Technically it's not listed a full on pro unit but put one in your hands and take a few. It's really great. Use it at the rated 3.1 Mpixels and your rewarded with some very fine images. When your first shots are downloaded and viewed it's stunning. What's more stunning is this kind of performance is priced where it is. I'm telling all I know to get one of thier own....fast. (read more)

I researched digital cameras for approximately 1 week before choosing this model. I reviewed multiple review sites of all the popular cameras in this class/price range(approx. 700-1000). After careful review of user review sites, professional review sites and extensive viewing of sample shots I decied upon the fuji s602. My main priority was macro shot ability(excellent on s602) and full control of aperture, shutter, film speed, focus, white balance and low insertion noise. Considering these... (read more)

I am in touch with digital camreas since 1998 and thru this time i had 5 cameras. First one Olympus 340 than 2100, than 3000 than Nikon 5700 and finally S602. I hope this is going to be mine final purchase because i am tired of switchin cameras so often. This camera is easy to use, manual its great compare to olympus cameras, all features are perfect for amateur than need just little bit more than cheap. If you have 700$ ( depend where you are buying ) don't even look for any other product. (read more)

This is one camera that will make you forget that you are using a digital camera. No waiting time between shots. Excellent manual fine tuning options. Let's you use it just like good old 35mm SLR when its manual mode is chosen. Good resolution images. AUTO mode works like magic to produce images which require no tweaking at all most times. Must be SuperCCD's work. The EVF is not a good replacement for the traditional optical viewfinder but that is a minor problem. However, the camera is a... (read more)

This is the camera I was looking for. My old Ricoh rdc 5300 was very power hungry, slow focus and very bad in low light situations. The Fuji FinePix S602 Zoom solved all those problems and more. I can make photo's like my old conventional film camera. Adjustable shutter speed/diafragma etc etc. Especially the fact that my external flash of 15 years old fits and works great. It's a pitty that they don't advertize with that. You can also point and shoot. 99% the right shot. Even my software... (read more)

This camera is one of the best on the market at the price. The zoom is great along with the Macro setting. It is easy to handle and use. Picture quality is as good or better than the average point and shoot 35mm. Although it is a little slow on the start, it functions very well when it gets going. I would recommend this to any one who needs to take quality digital pictures. (read more)

This digital camera is as good as the adds say. Very easy to use. The zoom lens is handy to operate, the macro setting is just a push of a button. I havn't found anything that I really didn't like. Well, maybe the lack of a cable release and almost complete absense of any guidance for using the external flash feature. Excellent digital camera. (read more)
